IPC/WHMA-A-620 is the first industry standard for cable and wire harness fabrication and installation. The final product use classifications are defined and include criteria for acceptability conditions. This training provides a detailed overview of the IPC/WHMA-A-620 Requirements and Acceptance for Cable and Harness Assemblies and is supported by actual cable building exercises and concludes with a qualifying examination.
CSE students will obtain the knowledge to:
- Reference the IPC/WHMA-A-620 standard to make acceptable/reject decisions
- Correctly interpret the intent of the IPC/WHMA-A-620 standard
- Explain terminology and definitions
The NEW IPC/WHMA-A-620 optional hands-on training has been developed to help users become familiar with the basics of cable and wire harness fabrication. The hands-on module is optional for all levels of IPC certification. The optional hands-on training adds about 8 hours to a standard IPC/WHMA-A-620 certification course.
Hands-on skills completed during the optional hands-on module:
- Crimp Terminations (Contacts and Lugs)
- Stamped and formed-Open Barrel
- Carrier Cutoff tab
- Stamped and formed barrel terminations
- Machined contacts
- Termination Ferrule Crimp
- Discrete Wire Termination
- Modular Connectors (RJ Type)
- Solder Splices
- Two or more Conductors
- Crimp Splices- Barrel
- Soldered Splices
- Coaxial and Triaxial Cable Assemblies
- Tie wrap/Lacing applications
- Shield Terminations-Shield Jumper Wire
What is a CSE?
The Certified Standards Expert (CSE) is a subject matter professional with a high level of knowledge and understanding of a specific IPC standard or group of standards but doesn’t train students or teach IPC classes.
Each CSE Receives:
- IPC/WHMA-A-620 Standard
- Wire Harness kit & supporting documentation for use during hands-on module
Upon satisfactory completion of all written and practical exams at an 80% or higher, participants will receive Certified Standards Expert (CSE) certification.
Class Length: 40 Hours
